Fresh Banana Daiquiri – so Good you can skip the Rum

There are many ways online to make a Banana Daiquiri. But which is the best?

The recipe below has all the original Daiquiri ingredients – rum, triple sec, lime juice and sugar. We just add a fresh ripe banana in the mix.

And the results are astounding. Especially if you add in 0.25-0.5 oz coconut milk into the mix. Alternatively use coconut flavor rum such as Malibu.

You can make a frozen drink out of it by using a whole cup of crushed ice. But we think that dilutes the drink a bit too much.

Freshly grated nutmeg takes this drink from great to excellent. Don’t skip out on that!

Best Rums to Use

Its likely that you have a Bacardi rum that you may want to use. By all means go ahead and try making this recipe with it.

Different rums will bring in different flavors to this drink. We really like using Jamaican rums for that added funkiness. You can try with Appleton Estate 12 year old rare blend, Plantation Jamaican 2001 rum or even the cheaper Myer’s Jamaican Rum.

Adding a layer of Demerara overproof rum on the top creates wonders for this drink. You can use Lemon Hart 151, Hamilton 151 or even Plantation OFTD for this purpose.
